Tecate Group Expands Its PBLH ™ Module Offerings for Heavy Industrial and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) Markets

54V and 18V Modules Provide Scalable Energy Storage and Power Delivery with Breakthrough Performance and Reliability

San Diego, CA, January 30, 2020…Tecate Group is releasing and expanding its PBLH™ module offerings with the introduction of its 54V and 18V modules. These new modules will utilize Tecate Group's recently announced 3V TPLH™ threaded cells, which were designed for robust and demanding applications. Both of the new PBLH™ modules will support industry-leading charge/discharge performance, high reliability, and long operational life.

The 54V module (PBLH-54R0/166SD) is compact, fully integrated, and incorporates proprietary balancing, monitoring, and thermal-management capabilities. This module provides an easy-to-integrate building block for mission-critical applications where backup power is essential for continued operation or a soft shutdown in the event of power interruptions. It provides reliable, cost-effective, maintenance-free energy storage.

The 18V module (PBLH-18R0/500SD) is lightweight, fully integrated, and aluminum encased with 500 Farads. This module provides ease-of-use integration for power-hungry AGV, industrial, and telecom applications, providing versatile building blocks for complete systems with higher voltage requirements.

Both of these modules were designed with integrated monitoring capabilities and highly efficient cooling configuration, enabling them to sustain continuous high currents with minimal temperature increase in high-temperature environments. For industrial applications, they provide a simple, solid-state, highly reliable solution to buffer short-term mismatches between the power available and the power required. In AGV applications, they efficiently provide immediate power to sustain the designated drive cycle and ensure precise control, which boosts efficiency, safety, and quality in factories and warehouses.

PBLH™ modules operate at a temperature range of -40C to +65C, have a projected cycle life of 500,000, and boast a load life performance of 10 years. For more information about Tecate Group's innovative PBLH™ module ultracapacitors, visit
